The research concludes that harassment, racist remarks and sexual intimidation are part of the force's undesirable behaviour.

AMSTERDAM - Research conducted by the Free University of Amsterdam concludes that the behaviour of the city's police in its station houses leaves much to be desired. Harassment, racist remarks and sexual intimidation are regular occurrences.
The researchers say that although almost all police officers condemn such behaviour, it is still prevalent throughout the force.
Senior officers say that, while they regret the findings of the investigation, they also believe that it offers a chance to improve overall behaviour and attitudes.
